      so true! this looks fun and sweet mixed with a some drama and lots of new fashion. Lots of potential story lines. im so bored of only bad news, murder, autopsy, legal, and medical shows. snnnzzzz. i mean how many of the same thing do we need?? yea for something fresh! It should be smart too, Gilmore Girls had lots quick and witty dialogue, same producer will probably make sure this has some teeth
